The CEO of Houston-based Gallery Furniture lost $7 million on a promotion that promised to give customers who shopped at his stores their money back if the Seattle Seahawks won Sunday.
Gallery Furniture customers in Houston, Texas will see $7 million in refunds after owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale made a losing bet on this year’s Super Bowl game.
In a promotions move which many would call insane, the Houston gambler promised he would give a full refund to customers who spent $6,000 or more at his furniture store in the two weeks leading up to the game IF the Denver Broncos won the game.
I’m sure you heard by now that the Seahawks nearly massacred the Broncos with a 43-8 victory but when contacted about his loss, McIngvale said he was “thrilled” that he lost… and he should be!

While rumors of their demise may (or may not) have been greatly exaggerated online, it seems that the cute couple needed some time apart from each other last week as Tiny and a two of her girlfriends (Shekinah Jo and Shamra Star) jetted away to an exotic island and captured each and every second of their mini getaway online.
And while Tiny was busy Instagramming bikini pics and butt shots, Tip was chillaxin in a few of Atlanta’s local strip clubs, and captured a bit of footage of his own.

I did a little digging and it just so happens that the Emerald Green Applicqué Lace Cocktail Dress Tameka is wearing was the same dress superstar Janet Jackson rocked on the November 2011 cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, which came straight from the TOM FORD Fall/Winter 2011 womenswear collection.
Both women look spectacular in green but umma give Janet my vote for actually being on a photo shoot (it appears Tameka is in a dressing room).
Whatever the case, it’s the same dayum dress so let’s take a look at them both in it.
